Unique Consuela Features
This bag includes our inspirational leather-embossed reminder to "Make Today Ridiculously Awesome."
Our natural, untreated leather develops a beautiful, rich patina over time due to use, handling, and exposure to sun or water. The leather will burnish to a buttery tan hue, which makes each piece unique!
Before & after shown on Diego Wedge:
The color is very pale when it arrives. I have had some experience with natural leather with my Louis Vuitton bags. The key is to leave it in a bright room/sun for a few hours over 3 or so days, before you use it. It starts the tanning/patina process. This will make it a little more resilient when you first take it out. I would still be careful for about a month. Don’t take in the rain right away. You can use a LIGHTLY damp cloth and go over the bag. It will dry in a few minutes and look beautiful. This is a bag that will become more beautiful as you use it. The zipper in the back is genius. It keeps the integrity of a tote, with the option of securing a wallet, passport, etc...in the zippered compartment when you need it. Love it!
I love the style and size. It’s perfect for work and leisure and easily fits my laptop and files. I was disappointed when it arrived in the mail. It was almost white. I called to return it but they said it was pure leather and would tan to the color I saw advertised in the pictures. I have used it a few times and it looks stained. Curious to see if more wear will even it out and it tans to the color advertised.
Hi Mandy! First, thanks so much for your purchase! We hope you love your bag. We love our natural, untreated leather bags! One of the best things about them is that they all age at their own pace depending on where they are taken, how they are used, and what they are exposed to. Because it is a natural process, one unexpected drop of rain, latte spills, or the touch of an oily hand can create an initial stain on the vegetable tanned leather which will gradually fade out. No time to wait? Not to worry, as this is all part of the process of making your bag ridiculously awesome! Simply use a damp cloth or your favorite leather treatment product (we love Saddle Soap) to wipe the bag thoroughly which will even out the color and lead the bag to it's beautiful burnished hue.
